A Christmassy Irish Song for people that don’t like Christmas. But people that do like Christmas might like it anyway…

Somebody sent me this video. I was like, Ha, that’s good! It’s The Dropkick Murphy’s performing, “The Season’s Upon Us.” Yes it really is, you can feel it…

“The season’s upon us, it’s that time of year
Brandy and eggnog, there’s plenty of cheer
There’s lights on the trees and there’s wreaths to be hung
There’s mischief and mayhem and songs to be sung”

The Dropkick Murphy’s are an American Celtic Punk Band formed in Massachusetts in 1996. “The Season’s Upon Us” was a single from their 8th studio album, “Signed and Sealed in Blood”. “The Season’s Upon Us” was released in 2012 and was one of their more popular singles.

It’s got some classic lines like;

“My sisters are wack jobs, I wish I had none
Their husbands are losers and so are their sons”

And points out that;

“With family like this I would have to confess
I’d be better off lonely, distraught and depressed”

But ends on a fairly happy note…. Sort of…

“The season’s upon us, it’s that time of year
Brandy and eggnog, there’s plenty of cheer
There’s lights on the trees and there’s wreaths to be hung
There’s mischief and mayhem and songs to be sung
They call this Christmas where I’m from
“The table’s set, we raise a toast
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
I’m so glad this day only comes once a year
You can keep your opinions, your presents, your ‘Happy New Year’
They call this Christmas where I’m from
They call this Christmas where I’m from”

Tis the SEASON….

The Dropkick Murphy’s are currently on TOUR in Europe and the USA.
